A plane on the lake is worth two in the bush
Canadian produced yarn about battling brothers who are rivals in the air and in love. The plot is formula all the way. Not much in the way of production values, except for some good if unspectacular aviation cinematography. Stars Rochelle Hudson, Austin Willis and Jack La Rue. An okay time-passer if you're okay with predictable plots.
Two minutes are missing from this print. Good video and audio.
